Prayer for Desire

God, we confess that our desires have not always been in line with what you desire. Search our hearts and reveal any desires in us that, if satisfied, will not lead us to a deeper love for you or a greater surrender to your mission in the world. Reveal to us a deeper knowledge of who you are and what your heart desires. Fill us with desires for things that are good, pure, beautiful, truthful, lovely, and just. Lead us by your Spirit into activities that demonstrate your heart for the world, and in doing so, may our hearts become like yours.
